The technological advances within the lighting controls industry have also changed the way we work with our clients. Lights are no longer just on or off they can now be dimmed or orchestrated with a room’s shades to create the perfect balance of light. For greater efficiency and energy savings, consumers are now able to control their lighting systems from their phones—room by room, whether they’re down the block or out of the country.
With a growing range of options for residential, commercial and industrial sectors, LED is replacing traditional lamp sources in virtually all new construction. and remodeling projects. LED lighting is also being enabled with sensors that can transmit messaging to shoppers’ Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, turning a passive shopping experience into an active one. Because of LED’s long lifespan—up to 10 years--adding an enhancement like this is now a realistic investment.
